Well the year has started very quickly with a lot of knitting and pattern development work. I have to admit that I have several large projects for 2018 that I am both excited about and eager to see come to their successful conclusion. Firstly I’m looking forward to meeting friends at Edinburgh Yarn Festival in March. Beardychiel’s Caithness Crofts Yarn test batch will be in the mill in April and I am keen to see it back in my hands ready for knitters and dyers to test in early summer. In May I hope to be teaching in the Aberdeen area and further details will follow soon. I am then into the Beardychiel Rhodes Retreat and the fun that it should be. In the background I will be chatting to and working with my friend Eva Christie on bits of Perth Festival of Yarn for September 2018.
All in all a busy time. That does not mean that my designing will stop The Pentland Firth Shawl will launch towards the end of February and a new project/collection called ‘Keeping It In the Loop’will follow after that. Plans for some cotton lace work is also on the cards and you’ll all need to watch this space for that development.
Until then keep watching the podcasts and reading the blog as I remember to type it up.
